Planted some Sunflowers this year, for the first time. Wasn't long before we had a very colourful...and contrasting...visitor.

Comp is now closed and as I will be busy for the next few days the judging has to be today,so here goes.

Sue;The light background is perfect for the many contrasting shades and in particular the door,what a fab colour.I Iike the composition of the shot and I'm sure many people would have just walked past this.

John;the texture of this shot is superb,typical of you to see things differently but I'm not sure that there is much contrast of colours

Drainbrain;Not heard from you for a while,welcome.The flower is well captured as is the butterfly but I feel that the yellow overpowers everything else and the butterlly is overpowered.

Lesley;The yellow really stands out against the white petals which stand out from the the well blurred background but Ifeel the beetle is a bit lost

revreg;A good idea and I love the title but if you could have moved them to a darker background this would havehelped the contrast and my computer shows the colours are over saturated.


Thanks for your entries and the winner is Sue,well done
